Thf SaKiKiiay. the fame of whieh has heiome 
world-wide, branches olT the lower .St. Lawrence, 
and can hardly he called a river. II is rather i 
stii]>endoiis chasm, from one to two and a half 
miles in width, ilonhtless of earlh(|nake oriijin. 


ilL-ft for sixty-fivu milfs throuj;!! thf IiIkIi I.aureii- 
tiaii plateau. Its walls are almost an iiiibroken 
line of naked cliffs of sifjeiiite and gneiss. Its 
ilepth is many h indre<l feet jjreater than that of 
the St. I.awrem-e : indee<l, if the .St. Lawrence 
were ilrained dry. the Sa^uenay wonld, in many 
places, remain fathomless ; and no better compari- 
son car. be jjiven it than "Nature's Sarcophagus," 
as a writer in the London "Times" once called it 
in a de.stnption, ami delared that in comparison 
" the Dead Sea was pleasinj;." Mr. \V. 11, Murray, 
the Kifted writer, thus describes the birth of the 
vSaguenay : "It is a mountain cleft ojjened by earth- 
quake violence for -ver .sixty miles. throuj;h a land- 
scape of mountains formed of primeval rock. In 
olden times a shock which shook the worlil burst 
the Laurentian ranges a.sunder at its St. Lawrence 
line where Tadousac now is, and opened u]) a 
chasm two utiles across, two thou.sand feet in 
depth and over .sixty miles in length, straight 
northward. Thus was the Saguenay born." 

The town of Chicoutimi is situated sixtv-eight 
miles froiu the mouth of the Saguenay, which, 
nearly as far again to the west, takes its rise where 
tlie surplus waters of the Lake St. John are poured 
out into the awful chasm where the Laurentian 
uiountains were wrenched asunder by .some violent 
convulsion of nature. X) other river in tlie world 
atTords sncli .striking contra.sts to the tourist as the 

lirii;lu Vdiiny lilt-

SuKiKMiay ildc^. It ilraws its 
from the i'oiiiiiij;liii.t; of its 

the elevate.l he.l of Lake St. John. I'or tlie I'irst 
nine miles of its existence, on (•itlur -.iile of tlie Isle 
of .\lnia, which divides the river into two streams, 
it leaps and ijamhols in frolicsome disijlay. heed- 
less of the rocks that it encounters on its wav, now 
liaskint; in pleasure and sunlittht, regardless of the 
comin,t,' night, flashing and dashing in the full 
vigor of lu.sty youth, o\er jirecipitous declines. 
After the reunion of the sometime sejjarateil waters 
at the foot of Alma Island, there is a contiimation 
for thirty or forty miles more of precipitous cas- 
cades, falls and nijiids of the utmost violence, until 
some few miles ahove Chicoutimi, where the cNcite- 
ment, life and ela.sticity of youth give place to the 
splendid awe .and magnificent gloom that .settles 
down upon the ailull dark river, that heconies 
deeper and more imjjressive as it later approaches 
the .Stygian darkness of its latter end. 

Chicoutimi can be reached eithe.- bv rail <ir 
ste.imer. The tourist can start to this end over the 
Ouebec anil I,ake .St. John Railway, which runs 
through the .\dirondacks of Canada, or embark on 
the most magnificent .steamers of the Richelieu and 
Ontario Navigation Comi)auy, which leave the city 
of Ouebec every morning during the summer sea- 
.son for the far-famed Saguenay. These steamers 
are regular flo.iting palaces, with their promenade

<lerks adiiiinible for purposes of observation, their 
staterooins. ladies' cabins, saloons, diiiiiij^-roonis. 
etc., wliieh are a marvel of elegance and eonifort ; 
while the cuisine, the service of the meals, and the 
attendance on board leave nothing to be desired. 

The a])i>roaches to Chicoutimi by train and 
steamer are majiiiificent i>anonnnas of nature which 
burst upon the admiring jfaze of the traveller. 
I'roin the train, for some miles before approachiu}; 
the town, the optic vision is an ever-tu-l)e-remei,i- 
bered view of the Saguenay, more than three huu- 
dreil feet below. The picture.scpie and far-famed 
water-course stretches away l)elow, and on either 
hantl and in front are the heights of the northern 
shore, and upon them, just over the river fr(^m 
Chicoutimi, is the pretty village of Ste.-.\nne-du- 
Saguenay. The trip by tla River St. Lawrence in 
the palatial steamers to Chicoutimi is, without 
excei)tion, the finest in the world. I'rom Tadousac 
to Cape Eternity the scenery is one of the nu)st 
sidilinie grauilcur, and the maje.stic sublimity of 
Ca]>es Trinity ami bUernity is, indeed, an awe- 
insjiiring .sight. Three different elevations, and 
yet one rock ! Three distinct heights, and yet 
each about the same in its own individual extent 
and proportion ! Three equal cliffs, yet each 
distinct from the other ; but one great, awful 
"Trinity" of cape and mountain, rising aloft its 
summit to a majestically precipitous height of

for a si'coiiil iiiioii lliis tri]. i-ornwmd prDiimiiUirv 
will think il iR-ci'ssary to iii(|iiirc tlir urij;in of its

Hli<les the steamer, anil in proposition as the inter- 
vening spaee (.(rows less, iloes the trne .ippreiiation 
of the awful heij^ht ami massive jjrandeur of the 
Cajie inerease. At last, as the vessel steams aronml 
the i)oint and still nearer in to the .idamaiiline 
walls of the frowiiiiij^ preeipiee that seems re:idy to 
fall over npon it, a feeling of awe iM)Ssesses every- 
hody on deek ; and in eontr.ast hetween the relative 
si/e and a])]iarent imijortaiiee of the steamer and 
all on hoard of her, on the one hand, and of the 
iialiiral sMrronndinjfs on the other, is for the 
moment overpowerinj;, an<l, for oiiee in his life, 
the tonrist is unavoidahly oonfronted with an eii- 
foreeil reminder of his own utter insifjnifieanoe. 
The immense heijcht of these perpendienlar elilTs 
renders distanee decei)tive. The steamhoat ippears 
to he sailing ilan^erously close to the j .iince, 
that looks to ho hut a few feet distant from the 
deek. Vou jnek up a pehhle from a Imoket stand- 
ing on the deek and think it an easy matter to 
throw it aiji the roek. To your sur])rise, it 
falls far, very far, short of your aim. When the
